CR Surf Trips

Undiscovered jungle gem


These trips are just the start of our goal to find travelers the best hotels and surf tours, at the best price. Surf tours can be customized to your liking, for shorter or longer stays, and we can also recommend excursions for the non-surfer to enjoy when not on the beach . We put together all inclusive costa rica surf vacations.

Send us your preferred dates and we'll match them to the best price with the most convenience. Remember, you must be 21 to rent vehicle and have a major credit card in your name to secure the deposit. 

Any finally, before booking any trip, make sure you have your passport and it is not about to expire (more than 6 months). Otherwise, your surf trip will be limited to the drive to and from the airport. Do let this happen to you - Family Denied Entry Into Costa Rica for Short Passport Expiry

When you are planning a surf trip to improve your surfing there are many factors to consider. Do you want to stay in a ‘camp’ that has lots of other beginners, or where you will receive personal attention? Do they have other activities like yoga and Stand Up Paddleboarding? Do they support the local community by doing outreach programs? To help you answer these questions, we have been working with several surf camps run by women that make you feel comfortable in the waves and specialize in women’s surf adventures. Surfing with a group of women has a congeniality not found in many coed camps, and you will be supporting women-led businesses who support the local surf community. Read more

It gives you the maximum chance to explore and lets you stop at any surf break, at any time along the way, for as long as you want. This way if it is "going off" at one spot you do not have to leave because you have hotel reservations somewhere else.

Surf Tours & Camps

There are many businesses in Costa Rica that offer surf tours. It may be that you just want a guide for the day to show you the local spots. Or you may want someone to take you and/ or your family around to the breaks that suit your style of surfing for the whole trip, food and accommodations included. Or maybe you want someone to put together a Costa Rica surf resort all-inclusive vacation that includes kids. There are many packages to suit every taste.

The idea of a SURF CAMP does not have to be 'roughing it', you can stay in a 5-star resort or a beachfront mansion with your personal chef delighting you with the freshest ingredients. Or you can go completely off the grid, camping in on a beach in the Corcovado National Park on the Osa Peninsula in the south to Witchs Rock in the north. Whatever you wish, we can help you find courteous, professional, and local surf tour operations who will make your trip unforgettable for you. We've done this for fourteen years, running a fully licensed and insured travel agency.

Surf Camps

There are surf camps in every corner of the country. It's a great way to learn to surf, make new friends, and not have to worry about driving everywhere. Just because is it a 'camp' does not mean you have to sacrifice comfort. The surf camps in Costa Rica range from basic for beginners to all inclusive for advanced surfers. Some of them teach you how to surf right in their own backyard. Others will transport you to the best breaks in the area. And if you are in Costa Rica for awhile, why not try a camp where you can learn Spanish, too? We know which camps are best and will give you an expert choice so you can make your decision with confidence. Take a look at some of our favorites here.

Here is a sample trip from Del Mar Surf Camp

Watch this YouTube video created by Luxy Hair of their trip with DMSC from Nosara to Mal Pais:


Maybe you're tired of the crowds and the mosquitos, and just want to get away for awhile. Well a boat trip is the way to go. Most surf charters leave from Herradura or Playa de Coco and will take you to spots that are nearly impossible to access by land. A few even make multi-day trips, so you step off the plane, take a transfer right to the boat, and then you're off on an all-inclusive adventure. We can help make your reservations for Roca Bruja all the way down to Matapalo, and can find packages to fit every budget.

Travel Insured travel insurance

CR Surf Travel Company is a member of 1% for the Planet, pledging to donate one percent of our proceeds to environmental causes. It is part of our mission to help keep our oceans blue by supporting small hotels and camps that contribute to their community. Here are a few ideas for what you can do as a traveling surfer:

1. Recycle your water bottles – most every beach town has a recycling center or just leave them in your car and the rental company will recycle them.
2. Be a positive role model – if you see some trash, pick it up. It’s no big deal, but everyone doing a little adds up to a lot
3. Volunteer for a non-profit – in Costa Rica you can help collect turtle eggs, do beach cleanups, observe dolphins and whales, or plant trees in the rainforest.
4. Support the local economy by taking a tour – go visit the National Parks, try snorkeling, rafting, or kayaking, and learn how the ocean’s ecosystems interact.
